Just a quick post to let everyone know that I haven’t fallen off the edge of the earth!
Inspiration has been in short supply for the last several weeks. Too much work and not enough play, I suppose. I need to remedy that!
Today’s menu is inspired by Carne Asada, which translates to grilled meat. Sabrosa simply means tasty. So this is a tasty carne asada with beef brisket. Carne asada can be found in all of the Latin American countries. The choice of meat varies, region by region. The carne asada of my youth was a Tex-Mex version, usually made with marinated skirt steak, grilled over high heat, to produce of wonderful char on the meat.
Today’s carne asada is a result of looking for ways to use leftover smoked brisket. The ten pound brisket provide my family with several meals, most of which were centered around warm slices of soft, smoky beef, covered with homemade barbecue sauce, but this time I changed things up a bit.
No recipe, this time, except to say that I sautéed onion, garlic and tomatoes and I charred a few jalapeños in a skillet. I smothered the brisket with the vegetables and served it family style. Black beans and warm, soft, corn tortillas finished the deal.
Enjoy life. Spend time with friends and family. Savor every moment!
